First week at Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio
This state park is a gem.  
There are 245 30 amp electric sites that can accommodate Rv’s up to 40’. 

The campsites are spacious and very even.  We did not need to use any leveling pads. 
We were allowed to go through all the spokes of the campgrounds to choose the site we wanted.  We ended up choosing site 32 in the spoke that is first come first served.  We planned on staying 8 days but ended up extending to the park’s limit of 14 days.

 
During our stay at Maumee Bay State Park we mostly relaxed.  We took the bike trail leading to the beach and 2 mile boardwalk trail.
    
 
 
 
Another day we had a picnic lunch at Wildwood Preserve, one of Toledo’s Metroparks where we enjoyed noon tunes on the lawn.

 
 
We also toured the manor house.
 
Later in the day we joined a group at another metropark, Blue Creek Conservation Area, for a foraging for food experience.
Monte was a good sport. 
He touched and smelled the edibles (weeds) but would not sample any of the greens.
I tasted everything. Some were just okay while others were actually very tasty.
 
The beach area on Lake Erie can be accessed by a paved bike trail from the campground.
